Emgage PAC Endorses Andy Kim and Tom Malinowski for Congress

Emgage PAC announces its endorsement of Andy Kim for New Jersey’s 3rd U.S. Congressional District and Tom Malinowski for New Jersey’s 7th U.S. Congressional District. These highly qualified candidates have a proven track record as dedicated public servants who share our values and vision of an inclusive and tolerant America.

“We are excited to endorse Andy Kim and Tom Malinowski for Congress. After careful consideration, our national team selected these candidates for our first round of endorsements because of their exceptional track record working on behalf of the American people and for support for civil rights, minority rights, and a diverse America” said Wa’el Alzayat, Emgage PAC CEO.

Andy Kim, a son of Korean immigrants and a native of New Jersey, has dedicated his entire career to serving the American people and keeping our nation safe. He has worked at the State Department and the White House on countering terrorism and protecting our country, advising top officials, including the President on national security matters. He also served in Afghanistan as a strategic adviser to Generals David Petraeus and John Allen.

“I’m proud to receive the endorsement of Emgage PAC.  I look forward to working with Emgage to strengthen our nation’s civil rights, to protect minority rights and underrepresented communities, and to embrace the great diversity that makes our country thrive.  In these times of division, we need organizations like Emgage PAC more than ever,” said Andy Kim.

Tom Malinowski, a first-generation immigrant, has always been committed to public service and defending human rights at home and abroad. After receiving a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford University, he went on to serve on President Clinton’s National Security Council, focusing on strengthening NATO and ending the wars then raging in the Balkans. From there, he went on to work for Human Rights Watch and most recently served as an Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy Labor and Human Rights at the Department of State under President Obama.


“I’m proud to stand with and have the support of Muslim-Americans who believe in and rightly ask their representatives to defend America’s founding values of liberty, equality and opportunity for all. That is why I am honored to receive the endorsement of our country’s largest Muslim PAC. Our government must continue to protect civil rights at home, to combat violence and discrimination against ethnic and religious minorities, to welcome hard working immigrants and refugees regardless of religion or national origin, and to champion human rights around the world,” said Tom Malinowski.
